Rethinking Protestantism in Latin America

Edited by David Stoll and Virginia Garrard-Burnett

Born-again Protestantism in South and Central America is expected to attract one-quarter to one-third of the population by early in the twenty-first century. The diverse case studies in this volume explore facets of the movement such as the role of women, the connection with Catholic mysticism, the politics of supposedly conservative evangelical missionaries, and the implications for existing patterns of authority.
